    That is correct, with amendments the health care reform bill is now a stack of paper about this high.

    We talked about the biggest frustration facing average Americans today: people who still write checks for groceries.

    Senator Baucus demonstrates the level of "doo-doo" he is in after nominating his girlfriend for US Attorney.

    It all depends on what your definition of 'affair' is. You say 'affair' I say 'being horzontally friendly with benefits.'

    See, when I put my right hand out and shook it all about, I did the nomination-pokie and threw some names around, and that's how my girlfriend came about...

    December 7, 2009 at 6:57 pm |
  29. Isabel Siaba (Brazil)

    Will you get off my back!
    Why Senator, isn't that where you had Melodee Hanes?

  32. Terri from Atlanta

    I see no conflict. So what if I nominated my girlfriend for a US Attorney
    position? As I said, what's the conflict?

  33. Robert -- Palm Desert, CA

    Harry Reid as Custer...senate democrats as the 7th Calvary, with republican's as Sitting Bull and Chief Crazy Horse. Well, I suppose that's a fair analysis of how the health care debate going.

    December 7, 2009 at 6:51 pm |
  34. Isabel Siaba (Brazil)

    Senator, can you tell us what that "MELODEE" is you're humming?

    Look – my hand doesn't even shake – that's how confident I am that
    this bill will pass.

    Bring that Santa Clause back over here from the other picture. I need
    to tell him I only want healthcare to pass for Christmas.

  38. Terri from Atlanta

    To answer your question, unlike Tiger Woods, I only have one mistress.
    There will be no others coming forth.

  39. Patty A Banks Palmdale,CA

    Sen. Baucus, will you & Melodee Hanes appear on Larry King together?
    That would be very inappropiate

    Yes, buffalo meat is leaner and healthier.

    Now, now, now, folks...I don't know what then Senator Obama promised Ted Kennedy to get his endorsement in the primaries. But we're all aware of Teddy's life time commitment to passing comprehensive health care legislation.

    Look, she isn't my wife and I didn't cheat on her. Go talk to Tiger Woods.

    Well, the President says US Attorney is a little "up there", but he's thinking about letting her check names at the next State dinner!

    Panic erupted on the lobby floor today as the health care reform raged on in the senate, fueling speculation in the futures market for the American brand.

    The President made it perfectly clear that he would sign anything we sent to him. He just wants to get this whole thing behind him.

    I'm not worried about the "public option" I'm concerned about the Republican "public auction," a sell out.
